Dozens of animals rescued from home in New Hampshire
On Wednesday, August 23, 2023, the New Hampshire SPCA (NHSPCA) assisted the Bedford Police Department in removing 33 dogs, 3 birds, and a cat from a home with shocking living conditions.
According to the New Hampshire SPCA, the home was full of mold and the odor from the animal waste and ammonia from urine was “overwhelming.”
The dogs were living in wire crates stacked three high and not sized correctly. In addition, the floors were covered in feces and the dogs were tremendously stressed.
“The dogs were living in a home that was clearly overrun,” said Tona McCarthy, Humane Agent and Cruelty Investigator for the NHSPCA. “The condition of the newest dogs has not been fully determined as yet. Our veterinarian was on site yesterday and able to conduct an initial evaluation, but they will be receiving full checks beginning today,” McCarthy added.
The home was the same home that NHSPCA investigated several times over the summer, previously removing 14 horses, 2 mini-horses, and 2 donkeys, in addition to 14 dogs and puppies.
“We hope to find lots of new loving families for these very deserving animals,” the NHSPCA said, following the rescue.
